Because the sainted woman has given us all the Oh.My.God chocolate cake recipe of all time! It's dead easy to make and it tastes fantastic. Not one of your fancy, intense, dark chocolate extravaganzas - just a good, old-fashioned, gooey lump of chocolate heaven.
Now I'm a real cake pig - I have astonished (and probably horrified) people with the amount of cake I can pack away - but I could only manage a small piece of this cake at a time - v.rich.
Helpful hints: 1) If you can't find buttermilk use runny plain yoghurt (thin it with a bit of milk if it's too thick) and 2) a "box" of powdered sugar = 1lb. Yes, that's a whole pound of powdered sugar for the frosting. You got a problem with that?
Well, I say DH went but really he just drove me there and only came in to get a cup of coffee and a piece of cake (he loved the date & walnut cake by the way, ladies).
He did have a little look around and saw a few quilts he liked. He seems to have a preference for "pictorial" designs using appliqué and decorative stitching.
I quite like this one - I love the bead "water droplets".
But my favourites are always the "block" quilts - and stars are a particular favourite. Even a simple "Nine Patch" can be very effective. This one was made by an 11-year-old girl (with a little help from Mum) as a cuddle quilt for a friend undergoing treatment for cancer.
